Yard Waste Collection

Simcoe County Advisory: Bi-weekly Leaf and Yard Waste Collection starts April 11

Date Published: 
April 11 2022

The County of Simcoe’s popular curbside Leaf and Yard Waste Collection program is set to start April 11 in Zone One, running until the end of the week of May 31. These bi-weekly collections include leaves, grass, branches (sized and bundled appropriately), and other appropriately prepared garden waste. Residents are reminded to use kraft paper yard waste bags, compostable bags, cardboard boxes, or open-ended rigid containers when placing leaf and yard waste at their regular collection point.

Materials for collection should be placed curbside by 7 a.m. on Monday of the collection week for each area. Collection will occur during the week, not necessarily on residents’ regular garbage day. To determine your collection zone and collection weeks, please refer to the 2022 Waste Management Calendar, which was mailed to households earlier this winter or it can be found at this link. The schedule is also available on the Simcoe County Collects App, which is free to download from the App Store or Google Play. 

Spring 2022 leaf and yard waste will be collected throughout the week in each zone as follows: 

Zone One
April 11, 2022 
April 25, 2022
May 9, 2022
May 23, 2022

Zone Two
April 18, 2022 
May 2, 2022
May 16, 2022
May 30, 2022

Residents also receive two leaf and yard waste collection weeks in July.
